The throttle lever in a helo is the cyclic. Push it fwd to go faster - right?
Pull it back to slow down - right? Isn't that what throttles do?

The cyclic is connected to the Main AI (directly). Push it fwd and the AI shows descend and the helo goes down as well as fast. Pull the cyclic back, the AI shows climb, the helo slows down.

Where did I go wrong then? Have I missed something
